For the past 5 years, VIDEA’s Global Solidarity Challenge has helped raise more than $150,000 to support gender and human rights based programs. Part of this event allows one participant to visit VIDEA’s overseas programs. Raptim Humanitarian Travel was proud to work with VIDEA and help make this visit possible for one lucky winner. Last year Addy Trevealen was chosen for the trip- read more about his experience in his own words…My name is Addy Treleaven and I was the incredibly lucky name to be drawn in the annual Global Solidarity Contest draw to visit a VIDEA project. During my visit, I had the opportunity to travel across Zambia and meet with some amazing people while taking in the stunning landscape. Below is a letter I wrote home while visiting Western Province. I hope it provides a small window into my experience. A huge thank-you once again to VIDEA for the opportunity and to Lynn, Cathy and Anne for being such great travel companions!
